Listen up, folks! We’ve all heard that water is good for us, but do you know how good? Well, it’s REAL good! Let’s just skip over the little fact that we would cease to exist without it, I hope we all already knew this (if you didn’t, it can be your little secret). Water makes up 90% of our brain and 70% of our body, so drinking plenty of it is the only way to keep our organs working the way they should.
Anyone ever hear of the benefits water has on weight loss? Drinking a full 8 ounce glass of water before eating will help you feel satisfied sooner than eating on a fully empty stomach. This is especially wise to do before eating when you are feeling extremely hungry in order to avoid binge eating. When it comes to weight loss, it all boils down to calories in/calories out. Consuming less calories is the only way to lose that stubborn fat.
Let’s talk about the magic it does for our skin. Drinking water IS drinking from the fountain of youth! We can’t run from the fact that we are aging, but we can do it with beauty and grace. Water keeps your skin moisturized, naturally. This would clearly play a role in the reduction of wrinkles. Who doesn’t want to put those off as long as possible? It also helps keep your skin clear, so those who suffer from acne would find they benefit, as well.
I’m going to sum the rest of this up, because water has limitless potential. However, I’ll lead the way, but the rest is in your hands. Here’s a list of some more of it’s awesome benefits;
It reduces stress
It reduces blood pressure
It aids in digestion
It boosts your immune system
It lubricates your joints
It gives you energy
It lowers your risk of heart disease
It flushes toxins
It regulates body temperature
Moral of the story, drink more water (half your body weight)
